Superb Sunday Lunch

We use the pub regularly but haven't eaten here for quite some time. We decided to give it a try on the recommendation of friends. We were a party of 8 for Sunday lunch. The roast beef dinner was enjoyed by 4 of us, 2 lamb dinners, 1 steak pie (this could have been a bit bigger) and fish and... read more

Always had good food at the Millington, however not impressd with the new menu.. Decided to have the Asian skinless mackerel dish, not recommended and did not meet expectations. Thought that this would be sticky and spicy... very bland, soggy pak choi and mackerel still had the skin on. Where is the chicken curry and the to die for smoked... More

Hello, firstly, thank you for taking the time to review us and we're pleased that you enjoy visiting us regularly. The Mackerel is meant to be served with the skin on, as described on the menu as 'crispy skinned', however, we are always looking to improve so thanks for mentioning the Pak Choi and we will have make sure this...

We had a Sunday lunch with a group of friends before catching trains. We stumbled upon this pub by chance as we are not locals and we were just looking for a place near the train station to have some lunch and catch up with friends. The waitress was really cheerful and friendly and went out of her way to... More

Good selection of beer. Food was good in my case but looking around serving a piece of pork belly with an entire apple on the side is a bit questionable. Also prawn cocktail starter seemed to have a never ending supply of lettuce!! Staff friendly and helpful and pleasant surroundings.

We have visited the John Millington for the second time as a venue for a work night out. From the start they met our every need and more. On the night we had our own room and the food, service and cost were all fantastic. We will be back!

Food very good, great service by Nicholas. Good selection on the menu, so they catered for all of us. Could have been a bit quicker at clearing the table.

Had a lovely impromptu meal and what a delight. The service was fantastic from Gemma and Sarah, from giving advise on the menu to all round attentiveness. Definitely a must place to eat. Will certainly be going again
